As part of the Global Trees Campaign and the Conservation Leadership Programme, Fauna & Flora International is offering student grants to help meet the costs of Masters level research addressing questions relevant to the in situ conservation of threatened tree species. We invite applications for a maximum grant of up to £1,000 towards the costs of fieldwork for MSc research projects.
Successful applicants will also be able to access expertise through the Conservation Leadership Programme and its alumni network – a platform that supports career development and promotes knowledge and experience sharing between 2,500 conservation leaders based in approximately 100 countries.
- Research should relate to in situ conservation of a threatened tree species in a non-OECD country.
- The project must address a research question linked to the in situ conservation of a tree species categorised as globally threatened, ideally on the IUCN Red List. Other species not evaluated on the IUCN Red List (but which are likely to be globally threatened) will also be considered. Priority will be given to the most highly threatened species (for example Critically Endangered or Endangered).
- Applicants must be a master’s degree student enrolled on a university course in conservation or a relevant subject. The research undertaken with this grant should contribute to the fulfilment of the course.
- All applications should relate to studies that will be completed before March 2020.
- All research should be affiliated with an in-country partner, who should be involved in either supervision or implementation of the project work.
- All applications must be completed in full, responding to each question in the application form.
- A short CV should be provided with each application.
- A letter of support from your in-country collaborator should be appended to the application form.
- Completed applications should be received no later than: 23.59 GMT on Sunday 28th January 2018 and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org .
- If you have an interest in a threatened tree species project, but require support developing your idea, please contact the GTC team, who will be happy to assist you. Only enquiries received before 12th January 2018 will be guaranteed feedback on draft documents.
